Orange Cream Smoothie
This has a beautiful, refreshing flavor that is better than the sum of its parts.
I never would have thought of this myself, but years ago I received a variation of this recipe from a weekly subscription service. I've lost the original ratios, but like all smoothies, you can't really go wrong.
This has to be started the night before, so when you know temperatures are rising, peel a few oranges and leave them in the freezer for the next day. I keep them in a freezer bag. If I'm feeling motivated I separate them into sections, but if I'm tired I just divide them in half. The more pith you remove, the better, but don't go crazy.
1-1/2 frozen oranges either divided into sections or sliced
milk to just cover
1/8 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon honey
Put the orange sections into the blender and just barely cover with milk. Add in a few drops of vanilla and the honey, and then blend until it looks like soft ice cream. Leftovers are not great, so drink up!
